Arm lift surgery, also medically referred to as brachioplasty, is a procedure commonly performed to tighten and lift the loose skin of the upper arms be it from aging or from build-up of fat deposits.
Patients undergoing an arm lift surgery are expected to be able to resume daily activities and routine within a fortnight of the surgery. Swelling from the arm-lift surgery will begin to fade out and completely diminish within a week of the surgery. Patients will notice immediate change in appearance, however after passing the 3-4 weeks’ timeline, patients will experience further improvements regarding the arm’s overall appearance.
The duration of a brachioplasty/arm lift is around 3 hours.
The final decision regarding your candidacy depends on the surgeons. But some of the common factors that could affect the decision include the presence of loose skin around the arms.
